A safe and confidential counseling center.
At Kauitzsch Counseling of Austin you will find a comfortable and confidential environment to do your counseling work. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with mental health experience starting around 1998. I started as a volunteer and went on to professional jobs, training, and education and earned my Master's Degree. I have worked as a sexual assault counselor, bereavement counselor, crisis counselor, and in general counseling centers too. I have focused a majority of my career and practice on trauma and crisis work, which often includes grief and loss work. Both areas I'm passionate about! While these areas tend to be the primary focus in my practice, I also very much enjoy counseling issues such as anxiety, depression, LGBT issues, gender identity, couples and marriage issues and other things that might bring someone to a counselor. I believe in the counseling process and work very hard to make sure I am providing the best care for my clients. I attend regular training and education to keep up-to-date and to learn new ways to help clients. Kauitzsch Counseling of Austin is a safe and supportive place to make changes, work on goals, heal pain and hurt, work through trauma, deal with a crisis and work on other issues as well.

 Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and believe in the power of the counseling process. I have worked and trained in the counseling field since 1998. I earned my Bachelor's in family and child development and my Master's in marriage, couples and family counseling. My experience includes trauma (PTSD, victims of crime, military and police experience, sexual abuse/assault, and much more), grief (loss of child or other family/friend/pet, illness, etc.), LGBT issues (coming out, family issues, gender identity, etc.), and many other issues like anxiety, depression, stress, life changes, just to name a few. I provide individual, couples, family, and group counseling. I believe in working with a client to reach their unique and individual counseling goals. You are the expert on yourself and your issues and I will use my expertise to help you resolve conflict, challenge old beliefs and behaviors, change communication patterns, heal trauma and pain, work through grief, and learn to love and value yourself, find peace and calm, and bring balance and happiness into your life. Each client is unique and different and should be treated as such. Therefore, I use various tools and techniques to bring you the best results we can accomplish together.
